AA: 787s To Asia; No 330neo; 320neo Engine Soon

Thu Jun 19, 2014 3:30 pm

At yesterdays American Airlines hosted leadership council event, Derek Kerr CFO had a few things to say about the combined carriers fleeting.

He reconfirmed the carrier plans to receive its first 787s in November 2014. They will initially operate on domestic flights between Dallas and Chicago to build operational experience before being assigned to Asian routes.
The smaller capacity of the type combined with its expected operating cost should aid AA in producing improved margins across the Pacific

Also mentioned AA was not reviewing the A330NEO concept, and the carriers large order book of 787-8/9 and A350s should be sufficient to carry AA forward.

Lastly the decision on A32xNEO engine selection was due this summer. Both PW GTF and CFM LEAP have compelling cases and almost equal offerings, so any decision likely could come down to commercial terms.

Will be interesting to see what will be the first Pacific route. The rumor that CDG would be the first intercontinental route - was always odd to me.

Now is the first frame 788, or 789?

Doesn't seem like there's really any true "news" here, at least with respect to the 787. Anyone paying attention could have guessed - even before the merger - that Asia would figure prominently with AA's 787 utilization. That's where that plane's capabilities and economics are going to have the biggest positive impact, and it also happens to be where AA needs the help of that positive impact most.

That information has to be incorrect. AA converted a few -9s into -8s to accelerate the 787 deliveries.

Considering they are looking at running DFW-ORD for familiarization flights, appears like the first 787 crew base will be either DFW or ORD. So the Asia flying they are looking at replacing would be from one of those cities.

They will prob start with Chicago where they face the most competition and where the plane can make the biggest impact to the bottom line. NRT/PEK/PVG all 787 very nice to see that

ORD-PEK and LAX-PVG should be top priority for Pacific 787. They can run ORD-LAX repositioning flights to facilitate the crews. Exciting to see new domestic widebodies.

So effectively use the 788 as a kind of 763 backfill on thinner routes (but potentially longer). Routes like DFW-PVG, RDU-LHR, etc. Then the A350 as more of a 772 replacement, leaving the 77W for the handful of high density 3-class routes?

Based on the current Asia routes, I would predict the following:

DFW-NRT: 77W
LAX-NRT: High J 772
ORD-NRT: High J 772

DFW-ICN: High J 772

DFW-PVG: 787
LAX-PVG: 787
ORD-PVG: 787

ORD-PEK: 787

DFW-HKG: ? I dont know if the 77W will work for it or if a 787 will need to be called in. Im assuming a 789 will need to do it because the 788 doesnt have the legs I dont think.

Something like that indeed. The 787-8 can replace 763s and/or can be used to open new long-haul routes. In the longer term, the 787-8 can also replace the A330-200s from US Airways. The 787-9 can replace 9-abreast 777-200ER aircraft on a 1:1 basis while the A350-900 can be used for growth. The aircraft also fits nicely in between the 787-9 and 777-300ER.

There is a bit overlap but we must not forget that the A350 order is a "left over" from US Airways.

Its a little of both, but mainly the former. DFW-ICN has little F demand, but has had no problems filling the J cabin. Another important thing to remember is that DFW-ICN is actually a huge local market. Its larger than DFW-NRT/FRA/CDG. In fact only DFW-LHR/MEX/CUN are larger than DFW-ICN internationally. Its even larger than DFW-YYZ. A high J config is well within the reach of it.

Good point. Off the top of my head, DFW-ICN is one of only two long-haul non-stop routes that AA competes with anyone on (the other being DFW-FRA). Once KE upgrades to a 77W later this year, I would guess DFW-ICN is second only to DFW-LHR in terms of daily seats.

Thats very possible, but I was speaking of O&D. DFW-ICN has more O&D than even DFW-FRA or DFW-YYZ.

Smartest thing he said all day. Even if it's not true that they're all on equal footing, playing it off as if they are means they can go into negotiations with an engine supplier with all the leverage in the situation with the Engine Manu thinking they have to basically meet all their demands because it's a big order and someone else wants it.

Any idea how long they will last on the DFW-ORD-DFW runs and how many frequencies? Six months or so? It would be nice to see a daily 787 become a staple, 'Ala the 77E up to about 5 years ago.

Cool. I fly DFW-ORD every 3 weeks and it will be nice to see a widebody on the route again, even if it is short lived. I miss the repositioning T7 and MD11 that left DFW at 1 pm and the 6:30 pm from ORD to DFW.

RE: AA: 787s To Asia; No 330neo; 320neo Engine Soon

Fri Jun 20, 2014 3:40 am

When will AA load 787 flying into the ORD-DFW schedule? I'm scheduled to travel ORD-IAH via DFW in November. It would be nice to see a 787 at ORD or DFW, and better to fly one.

Unlikely. Delivery of the frame is due last week of November so won't start flying domestic runs until mid-December.

Ohhh.. so guess we won't see the 788 on RDU-LHR.. that's kinda sad.. but oh well..

I'd expect RDU-LHR to be fairly late drop of the 763. First it will require another service to LHR to rotate with and because the demand no the route will probably not warrant the upgrade.

MIA-NRT?
JFK-PVG?
PHL-NRT?

All that you mentioned is very likely. I think PHL-NRT is a no brainier. Not 100% sure about MIA-NRT.

I'm going to guess they will go with the LEAP engine since they are also ordering the MAX and have experience with CFM engines with the 737 and their A319s.

It sounds like ORD might be the first 787 base. ORD is the perfect candidate for the 787 considering the battle they have to Asia...Especially considering AA can't even do ORD-NRT daily...This will definitely help.

DFW-NRT: 77W
LAX-NRT: High J 772
ORD-NRT: High J 772

Why is everybody using the phrase high and low J? We don't know the 100% official configuration(s) for the 77E yet....Unless someone has something official to present to us...
I'm not complaining, I'm critiquing...
